This is 1 day tour from Hanoi to Halong Bay. The tour had a very good time management, (as the travel hours to Halong Bay is 4 hrs each way). We had cruised around the bay with lunch in the boat. Don't expect so much even it said it's a seafood lunch. It just regular home made dishes, like fried squids, vegetable, and egg with seafood. But the dishes taste fine. It also includes limestone cave visit, and bamboo boat ride or kayaking around the bay. It's definitely unforgettable experience of kayaking around seven wonders of the world.
Just a few comments on the tour guide and coordinator.
I WhatsApp the coordinator about pick up time, first, nobody respond to the WhatsApp, and later I got WhatsApp pick up time different from the time in email. The coordinator can have a better respond rate, and if the time is not sure yet could message me and say "we will let you know by when".
Our tour guide is David. He was humorous and trying to introduce the place to us. However, he could improve by doing the following:
1. Inform us the car license plate, so that we could find the tour bus after pit stop.
2. When we make pit stop (as the pit stop is linked with a big shopping place, and it huge), tell us exactly the time when to get back, it will be more precise, rather than just 20-25 minutes.
3. During the cave walked, he was walking quite fast, as I walked very slow due to health problem, I had a hard time chasing him all the way. It will be better if he turn back and look around if there are travelers fall behind.
These are few minor things, but it will not make travelers left in confusion.
